Coffee Talk..Monday Edition

Can we talk??

Does anyone remember the skit on 
Saturday Night Live (SNL), called
or am I'm dating myself here??

Does anyone even watch SNL anymore??
I'm the first to admit I haven't watched in
some time. Yikes, how many questions have
 I just asked? Anyways, I thought it would be fun to
have a little coffee talk.

Here goes...

..It's mid January (already) and I sort of feel like I'm running on fumes.
Perhaps it's the weather but I just feel blah. Am I the only one who
feels like this?? Guess, the January blues do exist.

...What is up with Instagram?
 I know I have complained about it 
before but it seems even worse now. My feed is always pictures
from days ago or ads?? Why can't they go back to way it was?

....I have been trying to limit my soda intake 
but I love me some diet ginger ale.
 It's so bad.

...I was planning a vacation only to realize I would 
be away for Easter. I have never missed a holiday with 
my Grandmother, so I had to change the dates.
I know my Grandmother wouldn't mind but I couldn't
live with it. At her age, well, everyday I get with her
is a blessing. 

...We always go out for brunch for Easter and I know 
she thoroughly enjoys it and I don't like to disappoint her.
Again, at her age...

...I hear a lot of people complain about getting older
and I really want to tell them to stop. Yes, getting older
is difficult but think about how many people get denied that.
My friend's sister's baby passed away at 9 months old.
Do you know how much she would give to have just one
more day with him? So, take every day as a blessing as it is
a gift.

Well that wraps up my Coffee Talk.
Now it's your turn, tell me
what is on your mind??
I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

  3. Instagram is turning into the worst with the way its set up now. I miss the days of actual timing of posts.

  4. I'm so sorry to hear about your friend's sister's baby. That's awful. My heart hurts just thinking about it. It really puts things into perspective. And I'm with you on IG! I feel like I never see anything new anymore :/

  5. Oh sweet friend, that breaks my heart about the baby! And yes, your grandma must love having you there at Easter, I love how you put her first! You are simply the BEST!

  6. My heart is absolutely broken for your friend's sister's baby, how awful! And how sweet of you to change your trip to spend Easter with your grandma. Ugh Instagram... enough said. They were bought by Facebook, so they will continue heading down a path that only pisses everyone off :(

  7. I am so sorry about your friends baby. That is gut wrenching. I never want to imagine that. Life is too precious to complain about things like age. Where are you going for your trip? IG has me all upset. I was getting about 130 to 200 likes per photo and now I am barely getting 60 a week later. Not sure why.

  8. I HATE the new IG set up. It was annoying enough when FB stopped being in chronological order but an app like IG needs to be in order.

  9. Oh gosh, hearing about your friend's baby is making me so sad. 9 months? I am so sorry. :( You are right, we should be thankful for every year we have.

    On a lighter note, I am over Instagram and pretty much all social media. Instagram is still my favorite but I hate what it has turned in to with the ads and the old pictures and all of that.

  10. Taking everyday as a gift is such great advice! My heart goes out to your friend. I can't imagine the pain. I'm with Nadine and you on how confusing Instagram is and even Facebook, showing me the same thing over and over (because I didn't like it) and posts from days ago. WTH! Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

  11. That is so true about cherishing each day and embracing getting older. It is hard to focus on that positive sometimes, but it is so true! :) I can totally understand you changing your trip! Grandparents are so special and spending time with them is such a gift! :) I've started out the year really sick, which is part of why I have been so absent... so I feel like I missed out on the whole "new year" thing and started in a slump. I'm trying to be patient.. but I am still really fatigued and struggle to do very much. :( BOO. Hang in there! Xo - Alexandra

  12. I haven't missed an episode of SNL since the mid-90s. If I couldn't watch it live, I'd record it on my VCR. Thank goodness for TiVo and Hulu now. Haha! It's not always good, but I can't quit it. Instagram is getting so bad, especially with it's recommendations now. I hate them! I usually don't mind getting older either, but I just turned 39 and kind of freaked out. What a good reminder to be grateful for my 39 years so far!
